I know I've asked this before, but I'm asking it again. I proposed this question at work like this: Say you have a couple that is always fighting. They've been fighting for decades, but things are getting worse and worse every year. Things are so bad now that they barely speak, but when they do they're yelling at each other. Shouldn't they just get divorced? Everyone said yes, but when I said let's pretend that the US is that couple, it gave them pause.
And then I show them this video:
It's a couple of years old now, but still accurate. Things are actually worse now, but there is clearly a trend that sees no reversing.
